Open Block EI

The Open Block Enterprise Initiative (Open Block EI) is a collaborative community effort to develop Web 3 Enterprise (Web3E) oriented blockchain smart contracts that enable dApps hosted on public blockchains and their associated decentralized organisations to naturally scale. The goal of Open Block EI is to extrude Enterprise capabilities and express them in a Web 3 public blockchain way, that is Open, Permissionless, Trustless and Decentralized.

Open Block EI utilizes a community commons based approach to develop Open Source pluggable Web3E components supported across blockchains. The idea is to leverage the native beneficial features of blockchains and their respective Ecosystems to provide re-usable composable capabilities that allow "in the garage" projects to rapidly scale with minor alterations of core logic whilst providing bigger Enterprise native projects a pathfinder on how to navigate and benefit from public blockchain features.

NEAR Foundation Grant Recipient

The NEAR Foundation graciously supported the porting of the Open Block EI projects Open Roles and Open Bank, for use in the RUST language on the NEAR blockchain, as part of the NEAR Grants Programme of 2021. We thank them for their support and urge NEAR developers to adopt and contribute.

The Programme

Open Block EI is a programme of work that consists of several projects that drive Web3 E capabilities. At present they are:

Open Bank Open Roles Open Rules

Each project specialized in a different Enterprise Capability domain, with each project supported independently on a given blockchain. The objective is to achieve a breath of support prior to embarking on a depth of support

The Open Bank Project

Discover Open Bank

The Open Bank Project

The Open Bank project is about creating non-custodial banking functionality on the blockchain. The concept is to enable dApps to have access to banking facilities that separate dApp function from dApp commercial e.g. payments more ...

The Open Rules Project

Discover Open Rules

The Open Rules Project

The Open Rules project is about enabling decentralized Web3E business rules. These rules provide the governance by which decentralized business ecosystems can transact with known outcomes.
